    Richard Hell

    Jew Score:



    (Richard Meyers)
    October 2, 1949 —

    The punk getup: spiked hair. Safety pins. Ripped everything. Born in London, right? Sex Pistols, et al.?

    Wrong! It was born in... Kentucky.

    While the Sex Pistols did popularize it, the punk look originates with Richard Hell (no, not his real name: Meyers), who preceded the famous band. In fact, Malcolm McLaren, the Sex Pistols manager, openly credits Hell for the inspiration. Hell was a punk rock pioneer; he is probably not that well-known because he spent the 1970s jumping from band to band.

    So that's pretty surprising, isn't it? Well, wait until you get to the punchline:

    The man named Hell is Jewish.

    Alright, to be honest, we're more surprised by the Kentucky part...

    Verdict: Borderline Jew.
